Year 5 w/c 6.4.20

Optional Work for Year 5 Pupils for week commencing 6.4.20

Dear Year 5 Pupils,

We hope you have now completed all your home learning packs which were planned up to the end of the spring term. As it would normally be the Easter break now we understand that you might be doing other things with your family this week and next week.

If you want to keep up with some school work, then below are some activities and resources you can do over the first week of the Easter holiday period- week beginning 6th April 2020.

Complete the activities in your exercise books if you cannot access a printer – just make sure you write the date and title of the lesson/task. Please work within your own schedule and at your own pace and ensure you have a break in between each subject.

For those who do not have access to printers, another great website for online learning is https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/. There are lots of resources and activities for Reading, Grammar and Maths – have a look for yourself!

Happy learning!

From Ms Duong and the Year 5 Team
